Cross-Stitch #4: The Molecular Structure of Chocolate Christmas Chocolate Box

After making the Avengers logo and pixel Thor, I got to change things up a bit for my present for my partner’s mother.  She teaches chemistry at a community college and loves chocolate (who doesn’t), and so I thought a stitch of the molecular structure of theobromine (chocolate) would be a fun present.

I found a variety of patterns of theobromine online and repurposed them to my own pattern.  When I finished, I discovered that my completed design was too big for my hoop (I didn’t think my plan through), so instead, I attached it to the cover of a Christmas box.  It’s now a nerdy box for Christmas chocolates.

      Thank you! I was so nervous about *not* hooping the cross-stitch at the time, lol.
